BRIANNA ROONEY
Founder & Lead Technical Recruiter
brianna@techees.com

I’m superstitious and highly believe in karma. I’m annoyingly positive and smile no matter my true mood because that always makes me feel better.

I have a famous chef of a husband and 2 kids. Diego Danger, 4 ¾ (yes that is his real middle name) and Lima Ariel who is 1 ½.  They are more fun and fulfilling than I ever could have imagined. Although, I do still enjoy a good happy hour.

I have enjoyed every recruiting rollercoaster I’ve been on. At the end of the day, helping make someone’s future brighter is incredible. While at the same time being able to watch a company grow and become successful because of the people you got to work there.

I’ve now reached another chapter in my career. I get to see my colleagues achieve higher levels of success every year. My career is extremely satisfying, and I look forward to continuing my growth. The tech world is only getting stronger and can’t wait to see what will be built next. Jetsons, here we come!

EMILY STELLICK
Senior Partner & Lead Technical Recruiter
emily@techees.com

I’m originally from Wisconsin and attended the University of Minnesota for Graphic Design. After enduring too many cold winters I printed MapQuest directions and drove across the country to sunny California. I quickly fell in love with the fast paced tech scene and became a recruiter in 2010.  I especially love working with startups that are bringing technology to new spaces and helping engineers find a team where they can make a lasting impression.

When I’m not recruiting I enjoy product design (check out the Rosé Floaté on Amazon!), graphic design, and baking.

BEN MARKOWITZ
Senior Partner & Lead Technical Recruiter
ben@techees.com

I’m a Los Angeles area native and ventured far and wide to San Diego for college to earn my B.S. degree in Business/Real Estate in 2011. Spoiler alert, I didn’t get too far into the real estate world having started at Techees in 2013. I’ve enjoy working with startups and engineers ever since then. I love being at the intersection of tech and people and I’m specifically interested in the IoT space.

When I’m not on my computer and phone I’m usually playing tennis and working to move up to a 4.0 ranking.

HEATHER MIYAMOTO
Senior Technical Recruiter
heather@techees.com

I like to start with the fun! I enjoy exploring new places and being outdoors. I’m a huge nerd, and that means I like everything from Harry Potter to Star Wars to Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, for all of my fellow readers!), to Disneyland, and so on. I’m also the kind of person who says hi to someone’s pet before I say hi to the actual person (I’m working on that).

Fun fact – I decided to get my BA in Communication, with a focus on Business Management because it was a huge fear of mine. I wanted to tackle that in the hopes it would pay off. Fast forward, and here we are! See, who says they don’t use their degree?!

I am now able to take what I learned and apply it in a way where I can help others achieve their goals. To me, recruiting is about finding someone their dream job. My end goal is to find each engineer that perfect role that they are looking for with a company that they believe in. I understand interviewing can be stressful, so I make sure to be there for you throughout the process and give you a little bit of Dumbledore’s wisdom and Disney magic.

HANNAH BREEN
Senior Technical Recruiter
hannah@techees.com

Although I am a California Native who enjoys a great breakfast burrito ( which absolutely has to have avocado). I once was a college student in the beautiful city of Boulder, Colorado. You better believe I am a proud Buff who loves college football. I’m also a diehard Denver Broncos fan. I may in fact have once been a former pen pal to Payton Manning. Besides football I enjoy Karaoke (Hall and Oates if you must know), hiking, and I’m planning on running the Los Angeles Marathon this March. They don’t call me the 5”4 of fury for nothing.

As a former barista now turned Tech Recruiter,  I see that changing jobs can be life changing. Simply magical! Ask my trusty side kick Misty, (my unicorn pal). She sits right next to me and will tell you the same. We’re here to bring the magic to you. Whether you are a new candidate in need of a career change, or a client who needs their next shining star. I’m here to sprinkle the golden dust along the way. Feel free to connect with me https://www.linkedin.com/in/hannahbreen1/. I’d love to share more of my story and hear more about yours. Maybe you can start with your favorite coffee?

MADISON LEE
Technical Recruiter
madison@techees.com

I’m sincerely amazing. I have natural tact and consideration for all. Being the go to person to fix things brings me a great deal of gratification. A hearty work life balance will always keep a smile on your face.

Three things I like to live by: eat, drink and travel…
1. Don’t discriminate on food, try everything at least once. I love Sopes!
2. Your Chief Drinking Officer encourages you to find your palate. I love Bourbon!
3. Traveling the world will transform your perception. I love Iowa!

DANNY MCELROY
Principal Recruiter
danny@techees.com

Six years of recruiting experience that ranges from searches for founding team members at stealth projects to hire #1000+ at public companies. Beginner BBQ chef, bartender and baker, with aspirations to break into the next tier in one of these fields soon. Joined on the Rams bandwagon following their move to Los Angeles and also excited to see Lebron in a Lakers uniform. Currently living in Southern California with my wonderful wife and plans to stay long term

WE PARTNER WITH MANY EXCITING AND SUCCESSFUL COMPANIES

WE LOVE OUR CLIENTS AND THEY LOVE US

Brianna has helped me with key hires at both Cognoa and WellnessFX. Of the different recruiters I have worked with, she has consistently delivered some of my best candidates that have allowed me to quickly and efficiently hire for key roles. She pays attention to what you are really looking for and is very responsive… she is also fun to interact with!

Brent Vaughn, CEO of Cognoa

Ben worked hard to get me connected with a great company that matched my skills and experience with the challenges that they face. Through several rounds of contact, keeping things lined up and managing schedules, Ben was a true professional the entire time. I highly recommend Ben as a recruiter, as he is one of the best I have seen in action.

John Drago, Technical Lead Manager at Cruise Automation

Building startups from scratch to an exit I’ve worked with Madison on both the hiring and being hired side of things and she’s a great recruiter! When I was looking for a job, she gave more in depth insights and worked more closely with me than any other recruiter. And when I was hiring, she did a great job of curating candidates before sending them to me.

Joey Trevino, VP of Engineering

I worked with Madison in late summer 2017 when I decided to make a career shift. I contacted her to inquire about data science opportunities and she showed a lot of initiative in helping me with my job search. She was very responsive and kept tabs on all opportunities that she had opened for me, and would follow up with me or with the prospective employers after every stage of the interview process to make sure that things were moving along. She was diligent about collecting feedback from myself and the companies I was speaking to, and used that feedback to fine-tune the next opportunities she presented to me.  I’m very grateful to Madison for helping me find my current position. My total time spent interviewing was minimal thanks to her hard work, and I couldn’t be happier with the fit between myself and my new company. I recommend Madison to any engineer or tech minded individual who is contemplating a career shift of their own!

Clarice Robenalt, Lead Data Analyst at Compology

It was an absolute pleasure working with Hannah. Not only was she incredibly professional and responsive, but she also took the time to develop a personal connection with me, which made working together even more enjoyable. It was obvious that she spent care and time finding opportunities that were in industries I was particularly interested in, and were great matches for my skillset. She negotiated me an amazing offer, and I would be thrilled to have the opportunity to work with her again.

Jared Geilich, Software at Pilot.ai

In this day and marketplace, especially within the Silicon Valley tech space, recruiters are can be assuming, annoying and relentless. Brianna and her team at Techees are a breath of fresh air, always going the extra mile to make their clients happy and not just help them find a job, but find them the right job.

I’ve worked with Brianna a few times over the past few years, and she’s helped me find two AMAZING positions that were absolutely perfect for me and my skill set. She assisted me every step of the way, from searching for open positions, to tailoring my resume, to prepping for interviews – she does it all, with a knowledge base that’s second to none. Job hunting can be a stressful time, but with Brianna in your corner, you don’t just have a recruiter, you’ve got someone who really cares and wants you to succeed.

Josh Sylvestor, Private Company

Danny is a super useful, super friendly and approachable guy that ultimately led me to my next job. He provided me with some insights that legitimately changed how I viewed some companies and their recruiting processes in the tech industry. He also helped me make up my mind in a very hard scenario between two companies, which I wouldn’t have been able to do alone.

One thing that I found really unique about Danny is that the companies he talks to and introduces you to are actually hidden gems of companies that are legitimately interesting and cool! Most other external recruiters I’ve talked to had companies that I couldn’t bring myself to get excited about, whereas Danny’s companies had me stopping to say “Wait, that would actually be awesome to work there!”

I would definitely recommend Danny to anyone looking for their next job.

Private, Software Engineer @ Affirm

Heather was instrumental in helping me identify and land a great opportunity.  She is preceptive and detail oriented, and goes the extra mile to help resolve issues.  It was a pleasure working with her.

Justin Ho, Director of Product Management at Cognoa

Emily is a fantastic person to work with! She is professional and friendly, allowing her to be a complete joy to work with. She didn’t hesitate to help wherever she was could and didn’t mind the constant bombardment of emails, phone calls, and texts. I enjoyed working with Emily. Within a couple of weeks, she already matched me up with a great company and another week into the process, I had a superb offer.

Tarif Kayali, Senior UI Engineer at Apple

Hannah is extremely personable and very competent at her job. She really listened to what I was looking for in my next role and only presented highly targeted opportunities that I would find exciting and succeed at. I was able to secure my next position in under 2 weeks. She made everything so easy!

Victor Mu, Helium

I’ve known Brianna for more than 5 years now, and so far she has found me two great positions. Unlike most other recruiters, she doesn’t bombard me with supposedly cool opportunities day in and day out. She rather has taken the time to keep in touch with me about my life and career. It’s comforting to know that she’s always there for me when I need her. I highly recommend Brianna and her team at Techees…

Farhad Saheli, Senior Software Engineer at Dictionary.com

Danny is hands down the best recruiter I’ve worked with. Throughout the job hunt process, he consistently put me in front of stellar companies. He made sure companies followed up with me on time and has a strong understanding of the software industry and relevant trends. I couldn’t be happier with going with him. He did not pressure me into anything; he focused on getting me opportunities and making sure companies treated me respectfully.

If you’re reading this and hesitate using a recruiter because of the negative perception they often carry (I thought the same way), I’d emphatically recommend working with Danny. Please feel free to directly contact me for a more detailed reference; I’m incredibly grateful for his professionalism and help.

Private, Y-Combinator Founder

Madison was far and away the most helpful recruiter I’ve ever worked with. Not only did she provide several job choices in a short time span, but she delivered an interview with almost every company she suggested. Further, she was fantastic in listening to me about companies that I wanted to work for and about locations that I wanted to work in. Sadly, most recruiters force their own agenda on job seekers, but Madison did a wonderful job of listening and working with my desires. Outside of the interviews that Madison set up, she provided a lot of help and proved to be a fantastic sounding board for me while I tried to figure out offers from other companies. It speaks to her professionalism that, even though she had nothing to gain by discussing my other opportunities with me, she was still willing to work through my thoughts with me and provide great feedback. I would highly recommend working with Madison in the future, and I hope to have the pleasure to do so again!

Brendan Nagle, Software Engineer at Blend Madison

Heather is amazing and it was a pleasure to work with her to find a Software Engineering position with an amazing startup.  We connected on LinkedIn, and very shortly thereafter we spoke and discussed exactly what is was I was looking for in my next opportunity.  She was excellent at utilizing her extensive network to connect me with several opportunities that were a great fit.  I am happy to say that I recently accepted a position with a company that is perfect for me, and it wouldn’t have been on my radar without Heather.  She is incredibly responsive, always prompt, and eager to go the extra mile.

Esther Rasche, Software Engineer at eShares

Emily is a very professional and friendly recruiter who paid a great deal of attention to my needs. She was most helpful in providing me with excellent matches, and made great suggestions that were suitable to my profile. It was an absolute pleasure working with her, and I will be sure to look her up again when I’m on the job market.

Neha Karajgikar, Software Engineer at Square

Ben has been one of the best recruiters I’ve had the pleasure of working with. His honesty, guidance and motivation helped me decide my next career move which in hindsight turned out a great decision for me. Keep up the awesome work and thank you!

Rahul Garg, Software Engineer at Helium Inc

Danny is hands down the best recruiter I’ve worked with. Throughout the job hunt process, he consistently put me in front of stellar companies. He made sure companies followed up with me on time and has a strong understanding of the software industry and relevant trends. I couldn’t be happier with going with him. He did not pressure me into anything; he focused on getting me opportunities and making sure companies treated me respectfully.

If you’re reading this and hesitate using a recruiter because of the negative perception they often carry (I thought the same way), I’d emphatically recommend working with Danny. Please feel free to directly contact me for a more detailed reference; I’m incredibly grateful for his professionalism and help.

Founder, Y-Combinator

Brianna is definitely one of the best recruiters I’ve worked with, on both sides of the table. She’s professional yet scrappy, with a deep understanding of the tech industry. Most importantly, she presents high-quality engineering candidates without spamming!

Michael Birk, Director of Engineering at Unity Technologies

Hannah is one of the best technical recruiters I’ve had the pleasure of working with. She takes the time to thoroughly understand the roles and responsibilities for each position. This allows her to only refer candidates who will be a close match to what we were looking for — saving us quite a bit of valuable time. She’s professional, polite, and a great communicator. I definitely see myself working with her again to fill future positions.

Kevin Chang, Founder and Head of Engineering at Tap Research

For early-stage startups, working with the right recruiters to hire the early-stage team is absolutely crucial. Emily has been working with Voicera to find the right matches for our team and we’ve been impressed by her methods and results. When it comes to picking the right candidates, following up throughout the process, responsiveness, maintaining great relationships, and more; I highly recommend Emily and her team!

Mohamed El-Geish, Co-Founder, Director of Engineering at Voicera

Brianna is someone I have built a long-lasting work relationship over the past several years that I have been in the Bay Area. She’s helped me find new opportunities as well as new candidates for companies I have worked for. She’s extremely genuine and trustworthy. She’s more than just a mere”recruiter” since takes on much more responsibilities to ensure the people she works with are truly happy with the decisions they are making.

Seth Edwards, Senior Developer at PubNub

Hannah is extremely personable and very competent at her job. She really listened to what I was looking for in my next role and only presented highly targeted opportunities that I would find exciting and succeed at. I was able to secure my next position in under 2 weeks. She made everything so easy!

Victor Mu, Helium

I 100% believe that I would not have found the amazing opportunity that I did had it not been for Madison. I am paid more that I could have imagined, doing work that I always wished to do, in a company whose culture seems to fit perfectly with mine.  When starting my job search, I was bombarded with recruiter emails, and I am so lucky to have connected with Madison as early as I did. She was one of the few that really tried to understand where I was in my career and what I wanted to do next, and the only one to recommend companies that genuinely fit well. It only got better over time; she values your feedback and is quick to factor it in. I don’t think I would have found the company I ended up at on my own so I’m very grateful to Madison. The little stuff really blew me away. Like other reviewers have mentioned, her notes on each company were super helpful; they were mini cheat sheets that had all the essential information I needed to know about a company. She’s also super responsive, and incredibly knowledgeable so you never feel unprepared. Finally, at the end of the day Madison is rooting for you. She focuses on bringing out your best self, and goes the extra mile into setting you up for success. She knew my worth better than I did, and in as little as a month I had gotten an amazing offer for a company I unexpectedly fell in love with. I sincerely can’t thank her enough.

Eric Kim, Software Engineer at Blue River Technology

I’ve worked with Emily on both sides of the recruiting space. Early on in my career, she helped me navigate joining startups and companies that were a good fit for me. She’s an amazing advocate for the individual while still being fair for the companies doing the hiring as well. That said, I also worked with her on the hiring front and was very happy with the experience. Great breadth and depth of expertise and hands down one of the best recruiters.

Jeff Chao, Senior Software Engineer at Netflix

One of the best experiences I’ve had with in recruiting process. Brianna is always on top of things, down to earth, and she genuinely looks out for the candidates best interests. Always resourceful and a pleasure to speak to I would definitely reach out to Brianna in the future.

Michael Villa, Senior Engineer at Tap Research

I found a great product leadership position through working with Brianna. She was really efficient and moved the process along smoothly, but also took time to understand where I was in my career and what my goals were. Brianna takes the time to find good candidates in my experience, and is really interested in good fit between the candidate and the team; I’d definitely work with her again if building a team, or looking for a job!

Brett Weigl, VP of Product at Salesforce

Danny is a super useful, super friendly and approachable guy that ultimately led me to my next job. He provided me with some insights that legitimately changed how I viewed some companies and their recruiting processes in the tech industry. He also helped me make up my mind in a very hard scenario between two companies, which I wouldn’t have been able to do alone.

One thing that I found really unique about Danny is that the companies he talks to and introduces you to are actually hidden gems of companies that are legitimately interesting and cool! Most other external recruiters I’ve talked to had companies that I couldn’t bring myself to get excited about, whereas Danny’s companies had me stopping to say “Wait, that would actually be awesome to work there!”

I would definitely recommend Danny to anyone looking for their next job.
